BREAKING: FBI to Search Mike Pence’s Indiana Home For Classified Documents
The FBI will search Mike Pence’s Indiana home for classified documents, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The Justice Department is in talks with Mike Pence’s lawyers to conduct the search.
Last Tuesday it was reported that a “small number of documents bearing classified markings” were discovered at former Vice President Mike Pence’s Carmel, Indiana home.
According to CNN, Mike Pence had one of his lawyers search his residence for classified materials “out of an abundance of caution.”
“Vice President Pence was unaware of the existence of sensitive or classified documents at his personal residence,” Pence’s rep. Greg Jacob wrote. “Vice President Pence understands the high importance of protecting sensitive and classified information and stands ready and willing to cooperate fully with the National Archives and any appropriate inquiry.”
Mike Pence’s Carmel, Indiana home
The National Archives last week asked former presidents and vice presidents to check their records for classified materials.
“The responsibility to comply with the PRA does not diminish after the end of an administration,” the letter states. “Therefore, we request that you conduct an assessment of any materials held outside of NARA that relate to the Administration for which you serve as a designated representative under the PRA, to determine whether bodies of materials previously assumed to be personal in nature might inadvertently contain Presidential or Vice Presidential records subject to the PRA, whether classified or unclassified.”
“The Archives sent the letter to representatives for former Presidents Trump, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, and former Vice Presidents Pence, Biden, Dick Cheney, Al Gore and Dan Quayle.” CNN reported.
The letter sent to former presidents and vice presidents comes after Mike Pence ‘found’ classified documents at his Carmel, Indiana home.
